The office-bearers said the businessmen, Rakesh Jain and Rajesh Jain, had duped as many as 64 IT traders in the city to the tune of Rs 2 crore and had been absconding. 
P Sanjay Kumar Chordia, secretary of the IT Traders Welfare Association, said that the Chindadiripet police had asked them to approach the commissioner’s office to lodge the complaint after sitting on a petition they filed for two days and even after filing a complaint with the CoP’s grievance cell on August 17, no action had been taken. 
Following this, they had lodged a complaint with the Chief Minister’s special cell. 
“The materials we have lost are movable and are of high value. A further delay in investigation will dilute the case and make recovery of the lost property difficult. It will also help the accused to escape,” Sanjay Chordia told reporters here. 
The complainants said Rakesh Jain and Rajesh Jain purchased computer parts and other materials from 64 dealers on Ritchie Street and never made any payment. When the dealers went to the company owned by the duo on Meeran Sahib Street on August 16, they found the company locked and the duo missing, the complaint added. 
The businessmen pleaded to the Chief Minister to intervene in this matter immediately and instruct the police to file a case and start investigations to recover the valuables back from the duo.
